Ordet

3 years ago at Jan 29 22:47
Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style. Its images convey so much emotion in the characters by allowing their expressions to work in tandem with mas... read more

"Erittäin miellyttävällä tyylillä toteutettua uskonjauhantaa, intensiivistä keskusteluelokuvaa. Näytelmiin perustuminen on usein hyvä asia. Birgitte Federspielin ylinäyttely oli pieni miinus."

“Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style. Its images convey so much emotion in the characters by allowing their expressions to work in tandem with masterful framework, composition and lighting. A truly memorable work that will continue to resonate long after its seen.” read more

" Dreyer is another director from whom I really should see more films. This is on the top of almost every "best movies ever made" -list and there has to be some reason for it."
